As some of you know, I’m on study leave this semester from my teaching duties at Columbia International University Seminary and School of Ministry (we have pretty large bumper stickers).
After serving two weeks on the OM ship Logos Hope in Singapore and Thailand, I have the rest of the semester to pursue a number of writing projects. Here are a few of them:
1. “Twelve Atheists Who Have Trusted Christ”: I’ve been working on the first chapter of this book and it is tentatively entitled “C.S. Lewis: Mere Atheist.” I’ve got a few contacts to pursue, but if you know of any believers who wandered for a while in atheism before trusting Christ, I’d appreciate contact information.
2. “Saved! Rescued from God, by God, and for God.” This manuscript is with my agent waiting to be pitched to publishers. I’m really excited about this one which is about 98% finished. The chapter titles are: LOST, LOVED, LURED, LEARNING, LABELED, LIBERATED, and LAUNCHED. The Epilogue is quite challenging and is entitled LOATHED!
3. “One-Year DocDEVOS”: Some of you may know that one of my earlier books is called “DocDEVOS: Ten-Minute Daily Devotionals on the Great Doctrines of the Christian Faith.” There are ten areas of doctrine in Christian theology, and the original DocDEVOS covered only the first three areas (in yellow). I want to write devotionals for the other seven areas. The total number of devotionals would be about 300-325. A friend of mine refers to my original DocDEVOS as a “kind of Daily Bread with teeth.”
4. “Working Out Your Own . . . Faith”: I have already developed five of these theological workbooks. These are lay-flat, fill in the blank, self-studies of the ten areas of theology. I’m very enthused for this project. I believe most Christians would enjoy going through these Workbooks and working out their own understanding of the truths of the Scriptures. This proposal is also with my agent.
5. “DocTALK” and “DocWALK” and “Heaven: Thinking Now about Forever”: I want to check into the possibility of having these earlier books republished, perhaps with some added material (such as study questions). DocTALK is a survey of all then areas of Christian theology and DocWALK asks the questions, “How do we put these truths into practice. When Temptation Strikes is a study of both temptation and sin, suggesting a number of strategies in not simply avoiding sin, but of moving on in godliness.
There are other projects that I am working on, but I value any feedback from any of you on these works. Thanks. Larry
